Famous watchmakers get on the train of connectivity.

An important part of the big names in the global watchmaking has made the decision about not to be outdone in the dizzying world of hyperconnectivity. And they made it clear in the Baselworld 2016, the great hall of this industry, which took place in Basel (Switzerland).

Tissot, one of the flagship brands of Swatch Group, the world leader in watchmaking, introduced a connected clock, the T-Touch Expert Solar, which allows, among other things, to find some keys thanks to a small beacon, and to access to weather data, even to GPS navigation.

Bulgari, part of the Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy (LVMH), the French giant luxury sector, announced a partnership with MasterCard to allow contactless payment through your model Diagono Magn@sium, which it hopes to sell before the end of the year. 

Tag Heuer, the biggest watch brand LVMH and a pioneer among Swiss groups launched in the connected watch, revealed that in just four months has already sold 20,000 units (four times more than expected) of its luxury clock Carrera Connected, created in partnership with Google and Intel.

The above ones are just some examples of a market reality that seems clearer every day. The ambitious iWatch watch of Apple and other brands, like Sony or Samsung, have come to meet a range of needs that go beyond knowing the exact time, and several of the big bosses of the world's finest watchmakers do not want to stay down this train.
